Selected half price mileage flight redemptions with Lufthansa Miles & More

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

It’s been a while since we covered it on Head for Points, but Lufthansa runs a monthly list of discounted routes for Miles & More collectors called ‘Meilenschnäppchen’.

This offer usually includes a couple of attention-grabbing deals, although you have to book and travel within a fairly short period.  The September list for discounted redemptions from the UK is here.  The headline offers are listed below, most with 50% off or more. Remember you still have to pay full taxes and fees, which can be quite high.

Lufthansa mileage bargains

Flights from regional UK / European airports to Lufthansa hubs are included in the price.

Here are the US destinations on offer, which all price at 55,000 miles return in business class (was 112,000):

Los Angeles
New York
San Diego
San Francisco
Washington DC

Outside of the US, you have:

Seoul (70,000, was 142,000)
Singapore (70,000, was 142,000)
Mexico City (60,000, was 127,000)
Tehran (40,000, was 70,000)

You must book by 30th September, for travel 15th December until 31st January.  You can book here.

Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold.  This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.

Note that these discounted redemptions are non-refundable.  You lose all your miles although there is ‘partial’ reimbursement of the taxes and charges.  Redemptions for children under 12 get the additional 25% discount on top, so the USA flights come down to 41,250 miles return.
